Effective July 1, 2018, section 456.44, Florida Statutes[1] , was amended to require health care practitioners who prescribe controlled substance to indicate directly on the prescription pad if the prescription is for the treatment of pain other than acute pain.

Chapter 2018-13, Laws of Florida now requires:

  1. For the treatment of pain other than acute pain, a practitioner must indicate "NONACUTE PAIN" on the prescription.
  2. If claiming an exception to the acute pain prescribing limits, indicate "ACUTE PAIN EXCEPTION".

A sample prescription pad including new requirements may look like this: [SAMPLE]

NOTICE: Health care practitioners are not required to destroy prescription pads already purchased. They can hand write the words “NONACUTE PAIN” or “ACUTE PAIN EXCEPTION” directly on the prescription pad until they are ready to reorder.
